Despite having become a global factor in destabilizing world economic relations, the pandemic has brought about new relations, many of which promise to grow into new forms of economic cooperation. Russia has proven to be a trusted partner of Latin America in the fight against COVID-19: 13 countries in the region have approved the use of Sputnik V and its derivatives, and several of them have already started manufacturing the Russian vaccine themselves. What opportunities for cooperation between Russia and countries of Latin America open up in the midst of Sputnik V’s success in the region? What joint projects in other areas have demonstrated stability and growth during the pandemic? What should investment flows, as well as pooling of experience and technologies focus on, so that the aftermath of the pandemic may be overcome sooner?
